Zaton Bay: Tours & Experiences
Have you ever been to Zaton Bay?
Zaton is a settlement hidden inside of the well protected, scenic bay situated only 8 km north of Dubrovnik. The settlement is consisted of two villages: Veliki Zaton and Mali Zaton. They are connected with a unique, several kilometers long promenade. You can reach them from Dubrovnik by bus; they are 20 minutes ride away. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation away from the summer crowds and big hotels, Zaton is the perfect place for you. Its soothing scenery with beautiful, intact beaches and thick pinewood shade makes you forget all the troubles in the world, if only for a short time.
Zaton has been a place for vacation since the early times of the Republic of Ragusa in the early 15th century. Almost every noble Dubrovnik family had their summerhouse built in Zaton. Although many of those beautiful renaissance houses were devastated during the Serbian aggression, some of them have been preserved or restored. Today they are an important part of Zaton’s tourist offer.
